Israeli GM <Boris Kantsler> (born 1962)

Apr-16-14  chesssalamander: Juding by his Most Played Openings, it looks like Kantsler prefers Queen Pawn as White, and against 1.e4, g6 or d6, and against 1.d4, King's Indian.

His win over Gelfand in 2001 is sweet!

He also has a draw against Tal to his credit.

Sincerely,

Mr. Obvious
